This is probably the first time in Lithuania that three artists have cooperated to create a performance that looks at the Lithuanian contemporary dance scene with a self-irony glance, quoting cliché movements, phrases, even costume details. |Contemporary?” is focusing ironically on the processes of dance making. What does contemporary dance piece consist of? What does it talk about? Which objects are necessary and which are optional? Does audience understand what it is all about? Do we need to explain the meaning of the piece to the audience? The answer is – just do it.

The Performance won the Golden Stage Cross as Performing Arts Phenomenon of the Year 2013.
